The Brothers Grimm Art project - Literacy and Art

The Brothers Grimm Art project - Literacy and Art

This project is designed to include research into the historical background of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Students will then look at current news articles to help modernise the fairy tale of choice. The project includes artist analysis and annotation in line with the GCSE Art AQA specification to ensure that lower years start to understand how to annotate their work. It also includes illustrating their modernised fairy tale. Students have thoroughly enjoyed the project and really engage with it. Those that enjoy writing can write their own fairy tale, others can simply bullet point or mind map their ideas as it is an art project after all. This can easily be adapted into an English lesson with less focus on the drawing - but you have the drawing support to make sure that the students produce quality illustrations.
